David Hammond, Phillippa Kassover will vie to replace Johnson on LFP Council

Lake Forest Park City Council candidate David Hammond will meet Phillippa Kassover in the November election for the Council position that Jeff Johnson is giving up to run for mayor.

Hammond, who had filed Thursday to run against Councilman Tom French, withdrew that filing Friday and re-filed to run against Kassover.

Candidate filing ended Friday afternoon.

Hammond is a Lake Forest Park Water District commissioner.

Kassover last year recruited Democratic precinct committee officer candidates in the 46th Legislative District, including Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle.

The two will meet for the only contested position in Lake Forest Park City government.

Hammond’s switch means that French will be unopposed for re-election. Councilwoman Catherine Stanford also will be unopposed.

With no Lake Forest Park position having more than two candidates, none will appear on Aug. 4 primary ballots.
